Orange Girl: Kirstie Tweed
“Canadian artist Kirstie Tweed takes on a variety of wild and wonderful personae in her series Orange Girl. Her series investigates the ways in which we define ourselves through social roles, dress, and physical markers both natural and applied. Working in lush saturated color and using hues of orange and oranges as her motif of choice, Tweed’s self portraits offer a humourous take on the malleable nature of identity.” –Alicia Miller, SF Camerawork
Kirstie Tweed was born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1973. She was raised in Calgary, Alberta. Kirstie studied photography at Alberta College of Art and graduated in 1995. Her ongoing “Orange Girl” series of self-portraits have appeared on the cover of Photo Metro and have been included in the collector print programs at San Francisco Camerawork, Society for Contemporary Photography in Kansas City, and Houston Center for Photography. Orange Girl work has been collected by the Houston Fine Arts Museum and privately in New York, Los Angeles, Houston and San Francisco. Kirstie currently lives in Banff, Alberta.
